Oeko Tex Certified Mattresses
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide recognized certification, independent testing, and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. At NNM, we carry oeko tex certified mattress and bedding.
Oeko Tex Mattress Standard 100
The 100 standard is currently the highest certification you can attain as far as testing for off-gassing and any other toxic chemicals associated. Here are a few examples of articles that can be certified: raw and dyed/finished yarns, woven and knitted fabrics, accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, sewing threads or labels, ready-made articles of various types (garments of all types, domestic and household textiles, bed linen, terry products and much more). Our manufacturing partners have the highest certifications in the industry.

For natural latex (sap from a tree) to be certified as organic, as with all organic products, it means that no toxic chemicals or pesticides are used in growing the natural rubber trees at the time of collecting the milky liquid, and up to the final production of the latex. For most organic /natural mattress manufacturers and consumers, the primary concern is that no synthetics are used in the production of the latex. This type of latex is all natural and is certified as 100% natural rubber latex. On the other hand, we have manufacturers, online companies, and store retailers selling cheap latex with the claim that it is organic. At NNM, our Oeko Tex Certified Mattress is free from any synthetic mixes.
Rest assured that current certifications are available when purchasing an all natural latex mattress from us. The Oeko-Tex Mattress certification will clearly state if the latex tested is 100% natural rubber latex, without synthetic content. In addition, we carry the certification also on our innerspring natural mattresses.
The 100% natural latex certification is very important, as high quality blended latex will also pass the Standard 100. We do not carry any blended latex since we are of the opinion that it is not as durable and not as pure. That is why it’s important to show at trusted companies and retailers.
Oeko-Tex Testing Criteria
The internationally recognized test OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is based on scientifically proven parameters and is revised annually in line with the latest legislation and research.
– Substances which are prohibited by law, such as carcinogenic dyestuffs.
– Chemicals and components which are regulated by law, such as formaldehyde, softeners, heavy metals or pentachlorophenol.
– Substances which according to current knowledge are harmful to health but which are not yet regulated or prohibited by law, such as pesticides, allergy-inducing dyestuffs or tin-organic compounds.
– Parameters such as colorfastness and a skin-friendly pH-value, which are precautionary measures to safeguard a consumers’ health.
Clearly, the criteria exceed existing legislation which is why we at Natural Mattress Matters want all our products to have this certification. In addition, the certifications often lead the way regarding legal regulations – such as the exclusion of carcinogenic, stricter regulation for formaldehyde as well as the ban on allergenic dyes.
In addition, all components are tested and certified by the independent Oeko-Tex 100 standard to ensure a clean and chemically safe sleep environment.
Oeko Tex Certification
The precondition for the certification of products in accordance with Standard 100 is that all parts of an article meet the required criteria – in addition to the outer fabric, for example, also the sewing threads, inserts, prints etc., as well as non-textile accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, rivets etc.
Additional preconditions are the existence and application of operational quality assurance measures, as well as the legally binding signing of undertakings.
